Literary Travel

Literary tours have been popular with some travelers for a very long time. When I lecture on Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, we always spend a little time talking about how a whole tourism industry has grown up surrounding the author's work. It's much like what we see happening with the Anne of Green Gables series.

I've found a website that specializes in literary tourism for travelers who are interesting is such journeys. There are group or individual tours available. Stretching from Twain's Mississippi to Dante's Italy, there are all sorts of literary tours available at literarytraveler.com.

I saw a special on television about one of these kinds of tours in Dublin...Joyce, I think. I'd sure like to take that one.

Now a Joyce tour could be lots of fun! I think I posted a video here some time back of a Dickens town they were setting up in the UK.
